Delicious Food and Great Atmosphere!

I really love this restaurant! The burgers are great but the staff is even better. They are very nice and friendly and they give the restaurant a very warm feel. I am a local myself and if you are looking for an authentic Maine cafe this is definitely the place to go.

Delicious breakfast; fresh, homemade real food. Great real down home atmosphere & people. We love to camp in the area in the summer & go in the late fall for our Anniversary & we make it a point to go to Brandon & Laura's cafe.

Really good food, homemade bread, and all at reasonable prices. Must try the cinnamon toast. It is still just as good as it was when I was here 2 years ago.

Great breakfast; no surprises: the food is fresh and wholesome. Sort of reminds me of Mom's cooking when I was a kid. But this is what I was looking for and found in their Blueberry pancakes. Following my occasional morning jog along Seal Cove Road (yeah - I'm that guy) or between Gilley and Mill Fields, I stop by for... More

Not tourist prices! Basic home cooking. Great cinnamon swirl bread. More locals than tourists eat here.

You can read my earlier reviews as this will be my 4th.....All I can say is nothing has changed. Laura, Brittany and Tina still do the serving while Laura triples as owner, server and pastry baker (cinnamon toast is amazing). Today I watched Tina and Brittany take care of the tables (and they were slammed) ....Brandon, the chef (owner) must... More

We came here for 2 consecutive breakfasts. First day I had hash, home fries and toast, the second day it was french toast and bacon. The servings are LARGE, one piece of french toast was enough to carry me to lunch time. I had it made with the homemade cinnamon bread. Food was very good, and well prepared. Owner Laura... More
